Hi all,

Long time reader, first time poster. Hopefully you can help me out.

My 08 Focus has been perfect. I drove to work fine this morning.

I came back this afternoon, started the car and the screen said

"REDUCED ACCELERATION"

followed by

"ENGINE SYSTEMS ERROR"

I plugged in an OBDII reader which I happened to randomly have in the car, and it came up with this:

What does this mean? I just drove it home, which was fine, just a delay before slow accelerating.Help! I rang a local Arnold Clark garage and they wanted £75 to plug it in themselves for their diagnostics! Am I screwed and have to go down this route? I'm only a student and can't afford much! Thank you!!

check the accelerator pedal connector, unplug it, replug back in. give it a try, proably the pedal at fault though. if you have a multimeter you can do a few voltage checks on the pedal sensor.

Thanks Ian, much appreciated.

Where would one find the accelerator pedal connector?

edit - found connector. Unplugged and replugged. No good. Thanks anyway
